Scuba Diving in Catalina Island, California, USA
Dive Site: Torqua Springs
Location: Catalina Island
Description: Kelp forest
Depth: 10 metres (30 feet)
Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)
A leopard and horn shark here - yeah! The horn shark was teeny at around 40cm and resembled a puppy - he was very cute and almost swam right into me! 4 spiny Californian lobsters, many black-eyed gobies and many senorita wrasse and not forgetting Garibaldi are all found here. There are swaying sea grasses in between crops of kelp in the swallows. It is a fun dive, just keep your eyes peeled for sharks in and around the kelp.
